Season 5 Cover Countdown: Green Arrow #40 Season 5 Cover Countdown: Green Arrow #40
40 DAYS to Arrow Season 4, and we have a new comic book cover to celebrate! Season 5 Cover Countdown: Green Arrow #40

Every year on GreenArrowTV’s Twitter feed and Facebook page, we’d count down to the new season’s premiere with a classic Green Arrow-related comic book cover. After all, it was the comic books that inspired the TV series to begin with.

Since there had sometimes been confusion about the covers without any context, this year we’re going to describe the comic book covers that we are showing. The issue numbers on the comics will correspond to the number of days left before Season 5 begins. For example, there are 40 days left until Arrow Season 5, considering The CW has announced an October 5 premiere date.

Here’s today’s entry.


Green Arrow #40 (New 52)

This might be the Arrow-iest of the Green Arrow comic book covers that we’ll be posting in our countdown. The issue itself is written by Arrow’s Andrew Kreisberg & Ben Sokolowki, but beyond that, look at some of the people on the cover with Oliver: Felicity Smoak! John Diggle! Katana! Cupid! And… Batman & Lex Luthor! Good times for all.

40 days are left to the Arrow season premiere – be sure to come back daily for more countdown posts! Past “Cover Countdown” posts can be found here.
